She is the creator and host of “Perspectives with Katie Kempner” (http://www.katiekempner-perspectives.com) a digital series that focuses on successful working women balancing busy lives. Her shows have been seen on iVillage, The HuffingtonPost, The Guardian and The Advertising Week site. She recently shot a series of shows at TEDWomen and will be shooting a new series of shows at Advertising Week Europe in March.
“Katie’s broad communications knowledge, strategic thinking, media contacts and her ability to work across regions and countries has played a key role in guiding CP+B and our management team over the years,” said Andrew Keller, CEO. “She is a true communications strategist with a deep base of media contacts and a real understanding of our work, our culture and most importantly the needs of our clients. Her dedication to addressing the specific challenges facing women in the workplace and sharing her knowledge with others is something we support and I am proud to announce her promotion.”
